A Little of This and a Little of That . . .

It is so hard to believe that it is already the end of January!  Once again time does not wait for anyone.

I have been doing a bit of work on my Bunny Hill BOM Phd (project half done) . . .

It is sitting under the needle of the sewing machine right now . . . waiting for me to get over there and continue with the machine quilting.  Hope to get this one done over the weekend – or at least to the point of sewing down the binding.

This is a new project that I’ll be working on – but there won’t be any progress pictures to show on this one.  Should be done and revealed by June though.  Yardage will be arriving at my door next week.  All you Canadian gals can find this in your local quilt shops right now – Robyn Pandolph has created another soft, romantic collection especially for us Canadians – check it out if you get a chance.  I believe there is also a contest underway to create a quilt using this line – go here to check that out.

Besides the new Snowbound BOM by Bunny Hill (see sidebar) I have decided to also work on the Autumn Houses quilt as an additional BOM for 2010.  I LOVE the houses, birds and pumpkins in this one.  Not a very good start though – it’s already January 30th and all I have done is the block pieces traced out on fusible.  Need to make some fabric choices over the weekend and commit to them!

This is the January BOM for the Brandon Peace by Piece quilt group . . .  I’ve got a good start on this one but need to finalize stems and flower placement and get the stitching done.

I bought this book last May when we were out in Kelowna, BC for a wedding and I love the patterns in it!

So in 2009 I bought a fat quarter stack and some yardage of the Blackbird Designs “Beach House” line . . .

and this is another quilt I’m tackling as a BOM.  I LOVE these houses.  I have all the pieces fused for the first block and every spare few minutes I get, I cut out a few .

So let’s recap this:

1.  I have seven PhD’s (over in the right side bar).  I put them there so they will haunt me every time I have to go into my blog!

2.  I’ve started four BOMs.

3.  I’ve started a project that has to be done before June so that it can be revealed in June.

So I guess I better get moving here . . . Saturday’s wasting away!

What are you working on this weekend? Wanna pop over here and help me out for a while?  Would love to meet you!

‘til next time,

M.

You have laid out quite a few projects for yourself for this year. And all good projects.

I made a start on the Blackbird Designs house quilt quite some time ago but came to a dead halt on it. I need to make some decisions on the project and get back to it.
